Cross this pattern with 15-18 sq. ft. of leather and what you get is a great looking backpack! Finished size is approx. 12 in. W x 17 in. T x 6 in. D. Complete instructions included, as well as list of other required supplies.
I am very disappointed in this pattern. The measurements on many of the pieces in the actual paper pattern do not match the measurments that are stated throughout the instructions. I imagine this first one I put together will be terrible because gusset lengths really need to be accurate and all of the gussets are between 1/2-1 1/2" difference in the stated size of the instructions and the actual paper pattern. the front pocket pattern is a completely different shape in the instructions than it is on the pattern. I've used many commercial patterns and this is my first experience dealing with such a badly made pattern. I'm not sure if the paper pattern is correct or if the instructions are correct.

I made a nice high quality backpack from this pattern. Wish I could share a photo of it.
